Photographer/Author JaTawny M. Chatmon Releases GETTING LOST
by BWW News Desk - Aug 5, 2014

What do Dove, Proctor & Gamble, Beyonce and JaTawny M. Chatmon have in common? They're all (independently of each other) making it their business to begin initiatives empowering our girls. Through the medium of photography and inspirational words, JaTawny M. Chatmon feels compelled to bring home to our daughters that they need to make the most of life. 'Getting Lost' by Photographer/Author JaTawny Muckelvene Chatmon is a collection of black and white photographs taken over the span of three years; coupled with Writings from a mother to her daughter. Written with daughters of all ages in mind, the book explores the ideas of life and what it means for girls to find the right direction for themselves. 'Getting Lost' is moving and life affirming. The author doesn't see herself as some sort of life coach or guru, but simply as a mother with a desire to raise a generation of 'freethinking, decent, positive and brave children.' 'I don't want my children to follow the crowd, I don't want them to be 'robots', I want to encourage them to make their own paths and follow their own hearts,' says the author. 'There are so many other mothers who want the same.' Mrs. Chatmon proves her point in voraciously embracing life and spending her life working on photography projects near and dear to her heart. Her work has been featured in Vogue Bambini, British Vogue, Babiekins Magazine, Parenting Magazine, Babytalk Magazine, National Education Association, YMCA, National Center for Missing and Exploited Kids, Until There's a Cure Foundation Warriors Fighting for His Cure & more. About JaTawny Muckelvene Chatmon JaTawny M. Chatmon was born in Japan and grew up an 'army brat'. She had the unique opportunity to take in the cultures of three different continents all before the age of 12. By then she was in the United States and elbow-deep in her aunt's theatre company. It was during this time that JaTawny's passion for the arts blossomed. Her love of theatre, quite naturally led her to a love of photographs. She was mesmerized by the art that captured a whole story by the click of a camera. Intent on 'leaving something important behind,' JaTawny has danced into the realm of authorship; offering up both sides of her vision, in works ranging from inspirational to incomprehensible. 'Getting Lost' is JaTawny's first book to be published by Chimerical Art Books. Additional titles such as 'The Pulchritudinous Children of October Snow' and 'RuRu & Rudy' are also scheduled to be released in 2014/2015. She is currently working on other book projects with her three little co-workers, also known as her children. She spends her spare time photographing homeless families and donating clothing, food and prints through her photography project 'Project Altruism.'

Dominique Lévy Gallery Presents ROMAN OPALKA: PAINTING, 9/4-10/18
by BWW News Desk - Aug 18, 2014

In 1965, French-born Polish artist Roman Opalka picked up a delicate No. 0 brush in his Warsaw studio and placed the number “1” at the top left- hand corner of a canvas. With this gesture began an enterprise later titled 1965 / 1 – ?, that would consume the rest of the artist's career in a determined but deliberately quixotic quest to paint every number to infinity. By the time of his death, Roman Opalka had placed more than five million numerals on 233 canvases and made unblinking photographs of his face each day in front of the work. The artist's numbers increased as his body deteriorated, and together these inverse phenomena – the overlapping fates of body and soul – yielded an unstinting visual diary of one man'ssimultaneous rage against and embrace of the mortal conundrum. Viewing that diary reveals the philosophical daring behind Opalka's discipline, the poignancy in his strategically dry but ultimately breathtaking search for the sublime within the methodology of his counting. Today, Roman Opalka's 1965 / 1 – ? stands as one of modern art's most powerful and poetic inquiries into the mutability of time and the spirit's response to it. (more...)

BWW Reviews: The Bronx Museum, Sze It Now and Burcaw's Street Mural
by Barry Kostrinsky - Aug 18, 2014

Hop on the 4 or the D train and travel north young men and woman to see art in the South Bronx. No, that's not a typo, I did not mean to say go see the Yankees. Like many inner cities including Detroit, the Bronx is best known for high crime, poor health condition and low test scores; However these inner cities are also the breeding ground for countless innovative film makers, music makers, visual artists and thought provoking thinkers. The why and how the tough conditions of these neighborhoods breeds an aesthetic flourishing is perplexing to figure out. (more...)

Colin Fletcher Releases 'I Am Not African American'
by BWW News Desk - Aug 15, 2014

Colin is proud to offer his debut work which represents his personal journey towards understanding his own identity, 'I am not African American' is already available on Amazon.com and Kindle and will be hitting bookstores everywhere very soon. 'I am not African American' is an informative explanation outlining the plight of black Americans throughout the history of the United States. It focuses on how black Americans have been lumped together without differentiation for their unique ethnic origins. In particular, Colin clarifies who black Americans of slave origins are, presently labeled as, for lack of a better term, African Americans, and why they are different from the other blacks who immigrated to America. He examines how their unique history of persecution and oppression has resulted in all blacks, for that matter, all people of color, are frequently treated as non-Americans. But also, Colin further emphasizes what important roles many black Americans have played in the history of this great nation. By specifically focusing on the speeches and Writings of Reverend Dr. Martin Luther King Jr., 'I am not African American' illuminates the fact that Dr. King's dream of seeing all Americans aspire to reach the Mountaintop can never be fulfilled if we do not understand and acknowledge the long journey African Americans have taken towards making this nation a 'more perfect union.' Only through their achievement will America be able to live up to its creed of 'All men are created equal...' Being a Jamaican American allows Colin to view race relations from a different perspective. He understands the necessity for unity against those who tried to oppress; however, through his own life experiences believes that we as a nation have reached a moment in our history where without proper delineation, our children will never be 'judged by the content of their character.' They will continue to struggle against those who believe that America is simply a place which can only be represented by a single face. (more...)
